Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Fund to open on Monday 11 January for research and learning & teaching projects

The University of Glasgow signed a strategic partnership agreement with Radboud University in the Netherlands in June 2018.

The signed Memorandum of Understanding commits the two research-intensive universities to invest jointly in extending their world-class research and enhancing the student experience. It also established the Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Fund which was launched in April 2019.

The University has received a fantastic response to the Fund since its launch, with 14 projects from a wide range of disciplines receiving funding in the last two years.

The 2021-2022 Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Funding Call will open on Monday 11th January 2021 and close on Monday 1st March 2021 for Research and Learning & Teaching projects.  ‌‌‌‌

The fund has been established to:

  • Facilitate and support joint initiatives that will strengthen the two universities’ strategic priorities;
  • Encourage innovative learning and teaching practices and initiatives;
  • Facilitate multi-disciplinary and cutting-edge research;
  • Encourage international staff mobility and provide opportunities for development.

The fund is seeking proposals for three different types of project:

  • Research (in any discipline, for one-year projects)
  • Learning and Teaching (teaching initiatives such as dual degrees, jointly taught modules etc.)

The maximum budget available for each Research and Learning & Teaching project is £20,000.

Each successful project will be awarded funding for one year, with the possibility of a second year of funding subject to a new application being submitted. Applications are invited from academic and professional from all disciplines at Radboud and Glasgow and their affiliated Research Centres and Institutes. Applicants must have an active contract of employment with one of the partner institutions (appointed at least 0.5 FTE). If on a fixed term contract, the end date must be beyond the funding period.
